XV Festival Internacional de Cine Documental
García-Pelayo's first feature film shares the impulse that led the surrealists to show the Papin sisters, who murdered the bourgeois family they worked for and then had a lesbian relationship. Manuela inhabits the space of taboo and transgression in the class struggle between peasants and landowners in Andalusia.
Gonzalo García-Pelayo (Madrid, 1947) is one of the fundamental cult authors of Spanish cinema. Responsible for dozens of films from 1968 to the present day, including titles such as Manuela (1975) and Vivir en Sevilla (1978), all his work is characterized by its vitalism, transgression and insubordination.
